Tuesday Brings Best Chance of Rain



    Summer-like weather is on its way to New England, but it takes a few days to arrive.

    The work-week begins with a continued northeast wind on Monday. That means the coastline will see temperatures primarily in the 60s, with a few more clouds backing in from an area of disturbed weather offshore. Meanwhile, away from the coast, temperatures will pop well into the 70s with more sunshine the farther north and west you get from Boston. While there’s a slight risk of a passing shower during the afternoon, the vast majority of towns will be dry all day.

    An area of low pressure swirls in our direction from the south on Tuesday, bringing more clouds for all and a better chance at more widespread showers and downpours. An isolated thunderstorm is even possible. It won’t be raining all day, but this will be our best chance at rain over the next several days. Highs will also be a touch cooler, with highs only around 60 at the coast, with 60s and 70s inland away from the cooling influence of a northeast wind.

    Wednesday marks our shift to a truly summer-like pattern, with highs across New England reaching either side of 80. It stays that way right into Memorial Day weekend, with humidity gradually ticking up by the weekend as well. Each day will bring the risk of a spotty shower, downpour, or storm. This will be summer-like hit and miss precipitation though, so while you’ll have to keep an eye to the forecast and radar most outdoor plans will likely go off just fine.
